Hello! I’m Aaliyah and I’m a third-year undergraduate student at UofT studying Neuroscience, Psychology, and Environment and Behaviour. I’m interested in the ways multidisciplinarity can lead to innovative solutions to today’s problems.
You could say my interest in science communication started at the Ontario Science Centre Science School, where I met wonderful people spreading science knowledge in unique and innovative ways. Recently, I’ve been combining my love of science with my love of writing by writing for the Royal Canadian Institute for Science (RCIScience), and editing articles for The Varsity.
I also tutor elementary and high school students, helping them reach their academic potential. When I’m not writing or learning about science, I love losing myself in a good book and spending time outdoors in all kinds of weather—hiking, biking, and exploring.
